This show was great! I'm still swooning and dancing around from it.

And I swear I wasn't bored even though I look like it in one of those photos up there.

Ha!

Show at Southpaw rocked!!!

Southpaw rocked, but was woefully underattended. Has TWP fallen that far under the radar?

Don't think i've ever heard "Gone" live before -- fantastic.

It's not as if they're super well-known. I saw them in Atlanta on the last tour and they sold out a 200 capacity room. They're playing in Birmingham, Alabama (as well as Atlanta) on this tour and I'm not sure how that's gonna work for 'em.

They played Gone on their last go-round. So good! Can't wait to hear them rip into "Dallience" and "Dare." Stoked!

The last time I saw Wedding Present was at Bowery Ballroom in April '05, and while I thought that show was terrific, it just seemed that on Wednesday at Bowery their intensity level and just the sheer force of their rhythm section has quadrupled since then. The trio of "The Thing I Like Best About Him..." (such precision!), "Dalliance" and especially "Dare" were just absolutely monstrous! This show just blew me away. I'd call it my top show of 2008 if I hadn't just seen the equally astounding Death Cab for Cutie show at Radio City just two days prior.
